You should take a look at Interwoven

While it really depends on the specific requirements for your project, especially the following critical factors:

1. functionality / integration w/ existing systems
2. time constaints/deliverables
3. ROI justification, or
4. project budget(or lack of)...

I was recently involved in a thorough evaluation of these products. Interwoven was the one that stood out above the rest. My experience with the company and products has been excellent. Here are a few of the "WHY"S":

"KITCHEN SINK NOT INCLUDED" - Their products are very robust and focused strictly on the management of all content (FS, DB, code)and automating the processes that facilitate QA and deploying that content into the production environment. Their Change Mgt. funtionality is not necessarily as extensive as Rational Rose or Intersolv's PVCS, but they are very good and will probably meet your requirements.

"PLAY NICE WITH OTHERS" - Teamsite is well built, has an open architecture (making for easy integration with the existing enviroment...e.g. content creation tools, web servers/app servers, personalization tools, CRM), and are very scaleable for rapid growth/deployment.

"DON"T FIX IT IF IT WORKS WELL" - They also enable IT to easily map their graphical workfow tools to (integrate with/modify and improve/control) the company's existing business processes.

"TRAINING SHOULD NOT BE PAINFUL" - The products are really very easy to use and have a learning curve that is measured more in hours and days than weeks and months.

"CM FOR DUMMIES" (and experts) - Extensibility is important. Their templating capabilities make it very easy to learn/use for any business unit users (content contributors) and management (blessings/corporate seal of approval)while keeping technical control centralized within IT.

I hope that you find this helpful to your search and evaluation.
